Fragmentary head of Athena Greek, Early Classical Period, about 480 B.C.The working of the top surface of this split-off fragment suggests that the head was helmeted and therefore represented Athena. The broad face with rounded jaw and prominent chin, the hair drawn to the sides in thick masses of crinkly waves, and the almond-shaped eyes seemingly affixed to the face have all been taken as touchstones of Tarentine style in the early Transitional period.
